Dry 85, touted as a modern speakeasy, is the idea of owner Brian Bolter, a former Washington, DC newscaster and his wife, Lisa. Open since Jan 1, 2014, Dry 85 was named by The Bourbon Review Magazine as one of the top bourbon bars in the United States in July 2015. I have to second that award.
Basil Hayden's is the lightest bodied of the Jim Beam portfolio of small batch Bourbons. If not straight up: Use this lighter bourbon in place of vodka in a bloody mary — it adds an extra layer of depth. I need to try!
